Hon. Muhammed Kadade Suleiman, Kaduna State Gubernatorial candidate under the platform of PDP vows to chase Mal Nasiru Elrufai from office In 2019 election.
Interviewer: Please tell us about yourself.
Hon. Kadade: I am Muhammed Kadade Sulaiman, I was born and raised in Kaduna and the first son of my parents. My father late Alhaji Kadade Sulaiman, he was the first district head of our village Nasarawan Doya and he was Chairman of Makarfi Local Government.
Interviewer: Why do you want to be the governor of Kaduna State?
Hon. Kadade: Firstly, I want the youths to realize, to wake up from their sleep. It is time to become responsible and start participating in politics and decision making. Decisions that will change our lives and that of the generation to come.
Interviewer: In what ways will you, as a younger candidate, be able to deliver what others haven’t done before?
Hon. Kadade: One thing is that, we the younger generation, the youth had been hearing this “Youth are the leaders of tomorrow”. The rate of younger generation in politics and government has decreased in large number. For instance if you look at them Ahmadu Bello, Tafawa Balewa, Maitama Sule and the rest, there were young people between 20 to 40 years and they did a lot to this country.
I believe the involvement of a lot more young people in politics in our country will bring great things to us. And I believe in most of our founding fathers ideology. Always remember that wisdom is not the prerogative of the old only. Even the younger generation might be endowed with wisdom.
I have always seen love as something that will bind us together. Love of state, love of hope, love of dream, love of life, liberty and the persuade of happiness. With these I believe we will make Kaduna State great.
Interviewer: How do you plan to reduce high rate of kidnapping and tribalism as is common in the state?
Hon. Kadade: Kidnapping comes as a result of unemployment and lack of security. If work is given to people, salaries are being paid, workers are not sacked without tangible reasons, then I see no reason why kidnapping will have room in Kaduna State.
And about tribalism, I will make unity my top priority, because I believe unity begets progress. I will try my very best to make sure that there is good interaction and communication among our people, with these all religious and tribal bigotry will be flushed out of the state.
Interviewer: Do you think you can chase Malam Nasiru el-rufai from office?
Hon. Kadade: “smiles” I will easily defeat Elrufai in 2019. I think this is the easiest task I will ever come across in my life. Because the youths have waken up, they have opened their eyes wide now, the elders too are with me as they want nothing now but development and not propaganda.
Interviewer: What can you say about the recent move made by Malam Nasiru El-rufai to borrow money from the World Bank?
Hon. Kadade: It is obvious. Is Malam Nasiru el-Rufa’i not ashamed? Was he not the one that criticized the past administration of debt? He said on June 2015 “ Kaduna State is so much indebted to the extent that each person living in the state has a debt burden of about 15000 naira including children yet unborn”.
The man who could not explain how he spent N7.721 Billion Paris club refund is now telling us how he will spend $350 million loan? It is clear that he is collecting this loan to fund his campaign not for work in developing the state.
Interviewer: In what ways do you believe you can push youth to the forefront of politics and make the needful and impactful change your state needs?
Hon. Kadade: In order to bring in the change we have been chanting for, we need to see the involvement of youth most be 100%. I want to remind the youth in Kaduna State today that we are the future leaders today. The future is now not tomorrow not next year. If we do not get involved now then we should be blamed for what ever we see.
We are the future today. Youth Participation is a must and must be taken seriously. It is only that you do not have to wait to be an adult to be an active member of your community. Your opinion matters and it should be heard.
I started participating since when I was 16 years of age, since before I started voting. Speak your mind online through social media or at meetings and gatherings. It helps you assert yourself and your interests. Also, you never know who might be listening but always think before posting anything.
Participate in youth organizations because they are places to expand your knowledge and become an active member of your society. If your community does not have an organization representing the youth, create one. Be the trendsetter and make impact.
Flow into different political parties and participate fully. You can be a politician even without contesting for any political office, you can contribute in many ways by being a member. But young people nowadays just want to jump and catch the rope. What I mean is that they want to contest without knowing their party members, excos, delegates and even party heads which is not possible. We need to participate fully and even occupy some key positions in different political parties. Secondly, giving the youth hope, will push them to a greater level in politics.
I felt if I have not put myself in the center of it then we will all continue be spectators. And thank God many young people are now gaining interest in politics. Absolute transparency and truth. I believe with absolutely transparency and truth, it will help our youths in getting into greater level. Believe in your self and follow your passion. Passionate youth will change Kaduna State InshaAllah.
We all care about something, why not stand for it?
Interviewer: What do you think it will take for you to win the upcoming 2019 elections?
Hon. Kadade: Winning an election is hard work. It takes time and careful planning.
Anyone thinking of running against an incumbent must make a careful examination of whether it can be done. Generally, there are two things that should worry incumbents. One, is whether the electorate perceives that things are on the right track.
The other is whether the electorate thinks the incumbent cares about them. A deadly combination for any incumbent is that voters think government is off the track and nobody cares about them and that is what is happening in Kaduna State.
The incumbent governor has failed to fulfill a single campaign promise and the people are totally not in support of himself. The number of unemployment has risen and the masses are bitterly complaining. Almost 30,000 people lost their jobs under the governor’s watch which is wrong. And the people of Kaduna have decided to vote the incumbent government out of Sir Kashim Ibrahim house in 2019 election. I think it is easy for any credible candidate to win election in Kaduna State, someone who is not a propagandist.
A politician of integrity must be seen making genuine efforts to fulfill their campaign promises. But in Kaduna no effort has been made to make the state great again as mentioned during their campaign. They promised the people heaven and earth.
5 Ways Your Caterer Can Ruin Your Event or Party
A well-planned event/party seems to run flawlessly. Drinks flow, food is served appropriately, empty plates cleared away, and there never seems to be any mess! Creating a smooth-running event is more than just arriving with food and drinks – there is also a fair bit of science behind a fabulous party! When a caterer asks you a lot of questions before giving you a full estimate, it is because they are trying to determine all the variables in the “party equation.” This way, they can determine the perfect menu. And amount of items needed to bring to your party to make your event a success!
This is really good and should be the case always for any event, but…
There are equal cases where the exact opposite of the above is experienced and events end up being a disaster in terms of food, drinks, and other refreshments. On that note, here are 5 possible ways your caterer can ruin your event.
Food Poisoning: This can be a real big disaster if you ask me. Now I’m not talking about guests being poisoned in the real sense of it. No, not at all! What I mean is a situation where the food is not well made or some guests are allergic to something in the food. And they have to keep going to the bathroom, taking turns in the process. This will totally ruin the day and give guests something unpleasant to talk about long after the event.
Not Enough Food: This is one bad experience that keeps occurring in a lot of events today. You’re invited to a party or an event with the hope that you will get proper refreshment, because you were counted (Invitation). When it’s time to be served, the catering attendant tells you there’s no more food and nothing can be done about it. This is one experience I wouldn’t want any event organiser to go through, especially if the flaw came from the Caterer.
Caterer not showing up on Time: Imagine having to organise an event where everything seemed to be going smoothly, guests are having a great time, up to the point where the time for food and refreshments come up. You look around for the Caterer, who was supposed to have showed up long before the event commenced and the caterer is nowhere to be found. Imagine if you have already paid the caterer ahead for the service, yet the caterer still shows up late or, disappears during the event or in a worse case, does not show up at all.
Corrupt Caterer: Think about this for a minute; you have paid your caterer based on your needs. You have also communicated the importance of quality to your caterer and not just quantity. Then in the middle of the event, the food is served and you notice everyone squeezing their face in a disappointing manner. You then taste the food yourself and find out that your caterer did not just go against your requirements and instructions, but went ahead to provide distasteful food. How would you feel? I sure know how I would feel…
Overall Terrible Service: Think about this as well. You’ve planned out a great birthday party, the venue is amazing, great decor, fantastic music and entertainment, and everybody is having a nice time. Then the menu is served; your caterer comes in with his/her entourage and you expect to have a great service to round things up. Imagine this is not the case, first the food isn’t tasty as expected, and the Caterer’s attendants are as rude as can be without the slightest knowledge of proper customer service & etiquette. To worsen things, the food and drinks finishes before half the guests arrive. Do I need to ask again how you would feel?

Introducing the Nigerian Association of Hairdressers & Cosmetologists
The Nigerian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists (NASHCO) has been in existence since the 1970s, precisely founded on the 19th of May 1978. The Association is a well known one with a huge membership database across the Country.
As part of the aim of its existence, the association was founded to provide a forum where Hairdressers as well as Cosmetologists could have their common problems dealt with fairly and timely. They also wanted to ensure that high professional standards and ethics within the field were constantly adhered to, in order to foster trust and confidence with their customers and partners. The motto of the association is “UNITY AND STRENGTH”.
However, in light of this knowledge which I believe generally precedes one’s revelation of the existence of “NASHCO”, there are 3 important things you probably did not know about the association and it’s really funny, because these 3 things are what has given the association the much credibility and recognition it continues to enjoy today.
Here they are:

2- NASHCO is registered with the Lagos State Ministry of Commerce and Industry
3- NASHCO is equally registered with the Lagos State Wealth Creation and Empowerment.
